A number of All Blacks return to the Hurricanes starting line-up for this week's pre-season game against the Rebels in Geelong on Saturday.

Beauden Barrett joins the reserves with Marty Banks again set to run play from first five eighths, while Julian Savea, Cory Jane and Jeffery Toomaga-Allen are also set to come off the bench.

Ben Franks and Dane Coles start in the front row while last year's All Blacks tourist TJ Perenara also runs out in the halfback's jersey.
